During his off seasons away from the pitch, Tony would plant parcels of vine alongside his illustruious father Jack and his own young son Robert.

Returning to his home along the Nagambie Lakes after the completion of service during World War II, Eric Purbrick discovered a cache of wine, hidden circa 1876 under the family estate cellars. Though pale in colour, it was sound and drinkable after seven decades. The promise of long lived red wine inspired Purbrick to establish new plantings at Chateau Tahbilk in 1949, today they are some of Victoria's oldest productive Cabernet Sauvignon vines. Having barely scraped through the ravages of phyloxera and a period of disrepute, the fortunes of Tahbilk were turned around by Purbrick who was the first to market Australian wine under its varietal name.

Very low disease pressure and perfect slow ripening conditions are the norm around the Chrismont vineyards. Fruit is harvested during the early hours of morning and directly transported to the winery. Grapes are loaded into a membrane press where the delicate free run juice is allowed to drain using low pressures with minimal movement to reduce phenolic extraction. The juices are allowed to settle over forty eight hours to clarify before being racked for fermentation. With a meagre amount of sugar remaining, the vinification is arrested and the wine allowed to clarify. Individual batches are selected to achieve the right balance of texture and flavours before assembling into the final wine.
Light straw with greenish hues. Honeysuckle, lemon and lime on the bouquet. Citrus and tropical fruit on the palate are carried by a great acid structure giving good flavour length, an attractive wine while young, will continue to develop subtle toast and honey complexity. An exquisite white wine, perfect as the most congenial aperitif, a delight alongside dover sole.
